The winds are abroad to day,
Ove- the hill-tops flying
Shonting aloud in their stormy play,
Blast unto blast replying;
Bowing the woods 'neath their tyrant sway,
The stubborn and strong defying.
They have taken the old oak tree,
. Whose gnarled bows unbending,
Have seen a thousand tempests flee,
And mock their vaiin contending
They have dashed him to earth in their savag
His mighty toots uprending.
And away and away they fly,
Stern 'desolttion's minions, -
They piei 'he mists that around them lie,
With keen. sky-clcaving pinions;
They scatter ' ! wretched clouds on high,
From the great sun's blue dominions.
Ah ! old ocean toars,
As he hears their fir-off shrieking,
And his billowy legions forth lie pours,
As if to meet their seeking;
While the cavern echoes from his shores,
Gives back his stormy speaking.
The wind and the waves have met,
Woe, woe to the bark outlaying
And winds and waves a mightie': yet
To join yotr strife is hieing
Ere yon pale visaged sun has set
Lo ! Death shall claim the dying.
Rage on, it's your's to-day,
To mock man's wenk endeavor;
We shrink before your fierce array;
We yield, bit not forever
Oh winds and waves, your vaunted sway,
Your linked strength shall sever.
And thou, oil crowned King,

Stern watch is o'er thee koeping
Thou, too, shallie a chained thing,
No more thine harvests reaping.

by the slight improvement in the price of
cotton, as indicated by the-fureign advices
to change, for a monent, their determina

we will not say, but it Eo happens that near
ly every year, jusi as our planters are pre
paring to put their crop in the ground,
there is a marked itmproernent in prices
on the other side of the water. This has

In the Senate, Mr. Bentoi: obtaiped
leave to withdraw the Texas Annexatiou
bill int-roduced by him .sone weeks ago,
and substit'tite in lieu thereof another bill.

from the Territory shall be adinitted so

of the Territory to be admitted on a simi

appropriates $100,000 to defray the neces

Mr. Beiton, after some remarks, ex
pressed a hope that this .bill might lie oil

Mr. Berrien moved "its reference to the
Committee.on Foreign Relations.
-This was strenuously opposed 'by Mes.
srs. Bentop, Allen-& others, on the ground
that inasmuch as the Committee have
reported against any plan of annexation,
they would also report algainst this bill.
Finally, the tontion to refer was lost by
one yote-yeai 22, nays 2 .
The bill was then read twice and suf
fered to lie on the table until the report
made yesterday shall be called up. Owing
to the indisposition of Mr. Archer it is

is the new Texas Bill of Mr. Bentun.
The plan of leaving all the knotty ques
tions-to be settled by a joint..commission,
is thought bY ny to be the best that
could under existing circumstances be de
vised. There is a strong feeling against
it in the House, but I presume rather than
lose-the measure, a majority will be found
to accept this scheme. : You will perceive
that the "Globe" heartily endorses it.
The following is a copy of the bill: -- -
"Be it enacted, etc., That the State to
be formed out of the present Republic of
Texas, wi*It suitable extent eind bounda

Texan Territory to the tuited States, shall
be agreed upon by the Governments of
Texas and the United States.

the sum of $100,000 be and n're hIereby

in the Maryland Penitentiary, and e'char
ged him wvith having itmposed ott the

the purpose of exciting sympathy. He
also alleged that Mr-.G. on one occasion

Mr. Geddings rejoined in equally strong
language, and denied the charges. He de
sired the ?entleman to understand that if
he, Mr. G., was humble and unassuming,
he was no coward, and was not sent-here
wvith a craven hieart. He .was proceeding
wvith some very warm language, when Mr.
Black said "if you will repeat that out of
